Loved You First

Zayn Malik was new to his school and was bullied like crazy, but when he meets Riley, the sister of one of the bullies, they become the closest friends. But when they both realize what their dreams are, will it tear them apart? or will they do everything to keep their once in a lifetime friendship alive?


8. Because I loved you first


.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.

I stormed up to him,

“HOW COULD YOU???” I yelled. He turned to the girl he had his arm around, “Babe, could you please go get us some food and drinks at the restaurant over there and I will meet you there?”

“Sure!” she giggled. I could tell she probably wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed. She got up and walked away and Sean turned to me. He opened his mouth to say something, but I didn’t let him,


“Dude, can I talk now?” he asked

“Fine.” I replied coldly, “but while you talk please answer the questions who is she? ; how long have you been with her? ; And WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM?”

“Okay. That’s Amber and well… I’ve been with her for 6 months.” He said. I felt like I was going to explode. He continued, “I don’t know why I did it though. I really love Riley, I do and that’s why you cannot tell her.”

“Are you going to end it with Amber?” I asked

“Umm… no… I can’t.” he replied

“And you expect me not to tell her if you are going to stay with the other woman? You are such a dick Sean.” I said and next thing I knew I flung my fist and punched him in the face. He was a lot bigger than I was, but I didn’t care. Next thing I knew I was doubled over in pain because he punched me in the stomach. Then he lifted me up and punched me in the face and I felt the blood coming down my face. As much as I wanted to punch him back, I wanted to be the bigger person. I started to walk away, but then he called me back,

“Are you going to tell her now that you know what I am capable of?”

I answered by turning around and giving him the finger.

“You know I doubt she will believe you.” He responded.

“DON’T CARE! She deserves to know.” I replied and walked home.


**Two Weeks Later**

.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

“So, Riley…” my dad started.

“Yes dad?” I asked. We had just gotten back. My mom and dad said that they had something important to talk to me about and I don’t have the slightest clue of what it was.

“Well, it’s about our trip.” My mom said.

“What about it?” I asked

“Well, we didn’t go to Chicago just for leisure,” my dad continued, “I had a job interview there.”

I was shocked. Would he work here? Or does this mean he was leaving? Or were we all going to move to Chicago? We can’t. I am happy with Sean and Zayn is my best friend. I can’t leave them, “So are we moving?”

“No. Not yet at least. This trip was an interview and if we do leave, it will be sometime in the summer, but we will know in May.” My dad told me.

“Oh okay, so even if you do go, I still have a lot of time.”

“Yes. Now your mom and I are going out to dinner/party. We will be back around midnight probably.”

“Okay, I was just going to go surprise Sean at work because he doesn’t know I’m home.”

“Okay, you have fun sweetie.” My mom said and then they left. I went upstairs to get ready because I wanted to look pretty when Sean saw me. I hoped in the shower because I smelt like plane, and then let my dyed blonde curly hair dry naturally. I applied a thin amount of makeup aka some mascara, a little eye shadow and my red Baby Lips. When I was finally ready, it was only 8PM. Sean finished at 8:45 and I wanted to show up closer to the end of his shift, so I went and watched some TV. After about 5 minutes, my doorbell rang. I got up and answered it. When I opened the door, I saw Zayn. Before he could say anything, I could see the sad look in his eyes so I hugged him and when I pulled away, I saw a huge cut on his face. It wasn’t fresh, probably a week or two old,

“What the hell happened Zayn? What’s wrong? Here, come in.” I said and led him to our living room, “What happened Zayn?”

“Look, Ry, this is incredibly hard for me to tell you but…”


.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.

“But what?” she asked

“But, a few hours after you left, I went to the pond where we used to feed the ducks.”


“I saw Sean there and he was… well it’s just… um… he… ugh…”

“Spit it out Zayn!” she said, getting worried.

“He was making out with another girl. Her name is Amber and he has been with her for six months and then I told him I had to tell you and then I punched him then he punched me and threatened to do it again if I told you, but you are my best fri-”

“No… no… no… he-he didn’t, he-he wouldn’t,” she said with a mix of hurt and anger. I went to hug her but she pushed me off, “NO ZAYN! Get off of me! You are just making this up! I don’t know why, but you are! I have been with Sean for almost TWO YEARS! Why would he have been cheating on me for six months? Zayn, I really thought you were my best friend. Best friends don’t go make up shit about their best friend’s boyfriend so I guess I was wrong about you! He loves me! Why would you say this about him!? I thought you liked him!” she screamed, tears falling down her face.

“I never liked him… the only reason I tolerated him was because I loved how happy I saw you when you were with him, but I knew from the moment he walked up to us that day, I knew he was trouble and that he would hurt you, but I stayed in silence.”
“Why does it bug you so much if he loves me?” she asked, somewhat angrily as she looked me dead in the eyes. I couldn’t hold it in anymore.  “Because… because…” I sighed, “Never mind.” And I turned and started to walk out the door.

“Because why?” she yelled. I stopped and turned to her,

“Because I loved you first.” I replied and then walked out.


.:~Riley’s PoV~:.

“Because why?” I yelled after him. Now he was just pissing me off. What was his problem? Why would he tell me Sean was cheating on me… he wouldn’t, right? Why would it bug Zayn that Sean loved me? Then my questioned was answered,

“Because I loved you first.” He said with a mix of sadness and anger then walked out. I just stood there, dumbstruck. Zayn loves me? And he loved me before Sean did? As I asked myself all these questions, one question that I hadn’t asked myself in a long time came to mind; do I love Zayn? I couldn’t think about that now. I had to go see Sean now, because it was 8:30 and by the time I got there, it would be 8:45. I quickly fixed my makeup and made sure you couldn’t tell I had been crying.

When I pulled up to Sean’s work, I put on a smile and walked in… only to have that smile disappear. Zayn had been telling the truth. I stood there frozen in the doorway. Sean looked up at me and his smile changed into shock. I gave him a sad/angry look and left, but sadly, Sean followed after me.

“Ry! Wait up!”

“No Sean. Fuck off.”

“Please just let me explain. I’m so sorry. This was a one-time thing. I promise.”

“Fine then, tell me her name.”


“Well then you are lying to me. This is a two-time thing, or possibly even a six month thing.” I spat.

“Zayn told you? I’m going to beat the shit out of that little mother fucker.”

“NO!” I yelled, “You are not going to touch Zayn. Got it? You will leave him and I alone and continue on your life with your little slut friend. Sean, we are done! After two years… I can’t believe you.” I huffed then stormed off. I got into my car and started to drive. After having driven for about ten minutes, I realized I wasn’t driving home, but I knew exactly where I was going.


.:~Zayn’s PoV~:.

I was sitting at home watching TV. Well the TV was on, but I wasn’t paying attention. I was thinking about Riley. She hated me now. She thought I was lying about Sean, and knowing Sean, he will continue to cover it up and she will still hate me. And now our friendship is gone, not just because of that fight, but now she knows of my feelings and it will be awkward, especially because I sit next to her in every class.

As I sat there thinking, someone knocked on my door. I wonder if it’s my parents who come home early. I went to open the door and before I could even see who it was, I felt a pair of arm wrap around my neck and warm lips crash against mine.
